Q1. In the given figure, a circle touches the sides of the quadrilateral PQRS. The radius of the circle is 9 cm. ∠RSP = ∠SRQ = 60° and ∠PQR = ∠QPS = 120°. What is the perimeter (in cm) of the quadrilateral ?
दी गयी आकृति में, एक वृत्त चतुर्भुज PQRS के भुजाओं को छूता है। वृत्त की त्रिज्या 9 सेमी है। ∠RSP = ∠SRQ = 60° और ∠PQR = ∠QPS = 120°. चतुर्भुज की परिधि (सेमी में) क्या है?

(a) 36√3
(b) 24√3
(c) 48√3
(d) 32
Here given a diagram as shown in the question

∠RSP = ∠SRO = 60 (Given)
∠PQR = ∠QPS = 120 (Given)
In a quadrilateral PMOK
∠MOK = 180 – 120 = 60
∠POM = ∠KOP = 30
OK = OM = 9 (Given)
tan⁡30=PM/9 ⇒PM=3√3=PK=MQ=QL

Similarly In ∆SON
SN = 9√3 = SK = NR = RL
So, perimeter PQRS
= 3√3×4+9√3×4
= 4 × 12√3
= 48√3

Q2.If the following figure, find the value of x
निम्नलिखित आकृति में, x का मान ज्ञात कीजिए

(a) 40°
(b) 45°
(c) 50°
(d) 60°
∠BDC = 30°
∠BAC = ∠BDC (∵ both angle are on same arc)
∠BAC = 30°
∠ACB = x° = 180° – (100° + 30°)
x° = 50°

Q3. In the given figure, from the point P two tangents PA and PB are drawn to a circle with centre O and radius 5 cm. From the point O, OC and OD are drawn parallel to PA and PB respectively. If the length of the chord AB is 5 cm, then what is the value (in degrees) of ∠COD?
दिए गए आंकड़े में, बिंदु P से दो स्पर्शरेखाएँ PA और PB केंद्र O और त्रिज्या 5 सेमी के एक वृत्त पर खींची गई हैं। बिंदु O से, OC और OD क्रमशः PA और PB के समानांतर खींचे जाते हैं। यदि जीवा AB की लंबाई 5 सेमी है, तो ∠COD का मान (डिग्री में) क्या है?

(a) 90
(b) 120
(c) 150
(d) 135

AB = 5 (Given)
Radius = 5 (given)
Hence ∆AOB is an equilateral triangle,
θ = 60° = ∠BOM
because AO = OB = radius
∠AOB = 60
∠PAM = ∠PBM = 90 – 60 = 30 each
∠APB = 180 – (30 + 30) = 120 = ∠COD
Because PA∥OC & PB∥OD

Q4. In the given figure, Tangents TQ and TP are drawn to the larger circle (centre O) and tangents TP and TR are drawn to the smaller circle (centre O’). Find TQ : TR :–
दिए गए आंकड़े में, स्पर्शरेखा TQ और TP को बड़े वृत्त (केंद्र O) पर खींचा जाता है और स्पर्श रेखाओं TP और TR को छोटे वृत्त (केंद्र O ‘) पर खींचा जाता है। TQ: TR ज्ञात करें :-

(a) 1 : 1
(b) 5 : 4
(c) 8 : 7
(d) 7 : 8
TQ = TP (∵ Both are tangents on circle from same point)
And also
∴ TQ = TR
⇒ TQ : TR = 1 : 1

Q5. In the given figure, AB is a diameter of the circle with centre O and XY is the tangent at a point C. If ∠ACX = 35°, then what is the value (in degrees) of ∠CAB ?
दिए गए आंकड़े में, AB, केंद्र O के वृत्त का व्यास है और XY एक बिंदु C पर स्पर्शरेखा है। यदि ∠ACX = 35° है, तो ∠CAB का मान (डिग्री में) क्या है?

(a) 45
(b) 35
(c) 55
(d) 65

∠ACB = 90 [angle on semicircle is always 90]
∠ACX = 35
∠ACX = ∠ABC = 35° (it is a property)
∠BAC or ∠CAB = (90 – 35) = 55°

Q6. P and Q are the middle points of two chords (not diameters) AB and AC respectively of a circle with centre at a point O. the lines OP and OQ are produced to meet the circle respectively at the points R and S. T is any point on the major arc between the points R and S of the circle. If ∠BAC = 32°, ∠RTS = ?
P और Q दो जीवाओं AB और AC का मध्य बिंदु हैं (व्यास नहीं) बिंदु O वृत्त का केंद्र हैं। OP और OQ लाइनों को R और S के बिंदुओं पर क्रमशः वृत्त से मिलने के लिए बढाया जाता है। T, वृत्त पर R और S के बीच प्रमुख चाप पर कोई बिंदु है। यदि ∠BAC = 32°, ∠RTS = ?
(a) 32°
(b) 74°
(c) 106°
(d) 64°

P and Q are mid points of AB and AC so OP and OS will be perpendicular at AB and AC respectively.
∴ ∠APO = ∠AQO = 90°
⇒ ∠ROS = 180° – 32°
∠ROS = 148°
∠RTS = 1/2 ∠ROS
∠RTS = 74°

Q7. In the given figure, PQ is a diameter of the semicircle PABQ and O is its center. ∠AOB = 64°. BP cuts AQ at X. What is the value (in degrees) of ∠AXP ?
दिए गए आंकड़े में, PQ अर्धवृत्त PABQ का एक व्यास है और O इसका केंद्र है। ∠AOB = 64° है. BP, AQ को X पर काटती है। ∠AXP का मान (डिग्री में) क्या है?

(a) 36
(b) 32
(c) 58
(d) 54
Sol.GIVEN DIAGRAM PQ is diameter of circle with center O, angle AOB=64

If we draw line AP Then
∠APB = 1/2∠AOB =32 (Angle at circumference with same arc is always half of the angle at center)
∠PAQ = 90 (angle at semicircle with diameter is always 90)
∠AXP = 180 – (∠APB+∠PAQ)=180-(90+22) = 58°

Q8.In the given figure, find the radius of smaller circle (r) :
दी गयी आकृति में, छोटे वृत्त की त्रिज्या ज्ञात करें

(a) (√3-2√2)R
(b) 2(√2-1)R
(c) (3-2√2)R
(d) None of these

Radius of larger circle = R
Radius of smaller circle = r
Centre of smaller circle = c
OA =R√2
AC =r√2
OA = R + r + r√2
r=((√2-1)/(√2+1))R or (3-2√2)R

Q9. In the given figure, E and F are the centers of two identical circles. What is the ratio of area of triangle AOB to the area of triangle DOC ?
दिए गए आंकड़े में, E और F दो समान वृत्त के केंद्र हैं। त्रिभुज AOB और त्रिभुज DOC के क्षेत्रफल का अनुपात क्या है?

(a)1 : 3
(b) 1 : 9
(c)1 : 8
(d) 1 : 4

Sol. ACCORDING TO QUESTION FIGURE IS DRAWN, two circles with center E & F

AB = DM = CN
[As shown in fig]

(Area of ∆AOB)/(Area of ∆DOC)=(AB^2)/(DC^2 )=(1/3)^2=1/9

Q10.In the given figure, ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral whose side AB is a diameter of the circle through A, B and C. If ∠ADC = 130°. Find ∠CAB.
दिए गए आंकड़े में, ABCD एक चक्रीय चतुर्भुज है जिसका भुजा AB वृत्त पर बिंदु A, B और C के माध्यम से वृत्त का व्यास है यदि ∠ADC = 130 °. ∠CAB का मान ज्ञात करें

(a) 40°
(b) 50°
(c) 30°
(d) 130°
